Beaworthy is not likely to be a place that many people have visited or in fact have even heard of, but it is in fact a beautiful little village in the West of Devon. According to the 2001 census this village had a population of 236 and whilst this will have changed in the last decade, it has not risen much. This means that it is a very small village in relative terms and also means that it is a good place to take as an example to explain the nationwide nature of personal injury compensation, as for injury lawyers Beaworthy is as important a location as London, Liverpool and all other urban centres.
Injury Lawyers Beaworthy?
The fact that for injury lawyers Beaworthy is of equal importance to London and the likes may well seem like a strange and unusual statement, so what will follow is a little clarification. When we say that for injury lawyers Beaworthy is as important as any other locales, what we mean is that residents of Beaworthy have an exactly equal entitlement to claim personal injury compensation as anybody else. So, as was stated earlier Beaworthy therefore is an excellent example of how personal injury compensation is a nationwide right that does not change dependent on where you live.
It is also for this reason that Beaworthy residents are just as in need of information about compensation as everyone else, and this is why the rest of this article will attempt to answer the main questions about compensation and the claims process.
When and Why Can You Claim?
The right to claim personal injury compensation is set down in UK law, which states that if you are injured or fall ill and another party was demonstrably to blame then you are entitled to claim compensation as recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain that you may suffer as a result.
How Long Do You Have to Claim?
If your claim relates to an injury you suffered as a minor, or deals with an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning, there is no time limit as to when you can claim. Otherwise, there is a period of three years from the incident in question in which you must begin claims proceedings or your ability to claim elapses.
